Toronto mayor warns more scandal may come
Agence France-Presse ^ | 11/14/2013

Toronto’s crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford warned Nov. 13 yet more scandals may come out as he faced a grilling by the city council but denied he was an addict.

~snip~

Ford said he could not assure council that there were no more skeletons in his closet. “I don’t know. I don’t know, there might be like a coat hanger left in my closet. I don’t know. I don’t know what is left,” he said.

Ahhh. Taking cues from the Anthony Weiner political playbook. Always a good idea.

I often listen to AM 740 "Zoomer Radio" out of Toronto on the AM Skip at night as we move into the winter season (Around Christmas time they have the BEST Christmas music for going out driving around looking at lights).

The other night they were talking on the newsbreak about the Bobblehead dolls for charity. I think the charity is United Way.

Coat Hanger ... So back alley abortions?

But being Toronto that may be a positive.

Toronto doesn’t have any railroads where a length of track could be liberated for a more pressing use?

I look at his picture and keep expecting to hear him say, “Do I want you to talk? No, Mr. Bond...I want you to die”

I’ve been reading about the guy’s tenure as mayor. It’s quite interesting. Both for his long-running belligerence and substance abuse problems, and some surprisingly sound leadership decisions. Balanced budgets, cutting perks and unnecessary government staff, reining in the public sector unions, etc.

We could do worse, LOL.

I am so tired of hearing about this sociopath and the publicity that keeps elevating him to celebrity status.

What is wrong with Canadians?
This nutjob's position is merely ceremonial.
Aren't there any adults in that body?
Shunning him is effortless.
Ignoring him totally is the solution.
Don't acknowledge anything he says.
Don't answer any of his questions.
Don't respond to anything he says.

Let him display his sick personality on TV.

His staff and employees in his office can do the same.

Why Is this such a BFD?

A railroad rail is very heavy, being made of iron. Being ‘ridden out on a rail’ refers to a fence rail, usually wood. Although in THIS case, and iron rail may be necessary.....................

yeah, at ~100lb/ft it might be too heavy, though they could use Light Rail.

So, he’s pretty much telegraphing that he’s murdered a hooker or two. Great.

This is the WH today! Zero was a crack smoking faggot in high school. He was turning tricks with middle aged white queers to get the money for his addiction.

I've been reading about the guy's tenure as mayor. It's quite interesting.

I appreciate your effort to supply information in the whole context of things. To update on the man's plight, the council have been able to strip the mayor of his two chief powers today. Now he is mayor in name only. One power gone is his right to hire and fire. Now this has thrown a whole new hitherto unknown possibility into the system.

There are the people who elect the man and then the politicians. Power has been taken from the people. The rabid press has virtually brought about his downfall. They were after him from the get go.

Yeah, like the "blame George W. Bush" exists in the United States yet. It is a syndrome of those who seek to destroy, then get worse in it's place. Suddenly the council dumps on Ford. He is the cause of all the problems. One sees the crying about what this does to Toronto and it's international reputation. The thousands dead and devastation in the Philippines certainly go reported, but quickly back to poor dear Toronto.

Excuse the ramble.

I recall DC mayor Marion Barry went to prison for doing crack, and it didn’t stop him from coming back later and getting another term as mayor.

On your post re DC Mayor Marion Barry. I did some Wikipedia work and will say he is larger than life. I wish him well.

One thing I should have mentioned on Mayor Rob Ford is the honesty in things financial. He has even paid his own expenses. We knew they(naysayers) were gunning for him when he used his mayoral letterhead sheet inadvertently, to appeal for funds for a youth football team equipment. The youths were locked into a district with little hope for a decent job. Drugs and violence prevailed. They were black youths. Ford wanted them off the street.

He managed to ride those charges out.
